A precursor of Sinclair Lewis' "Main Street" and a counterpoint to Theodore Dreiser's "Sister Carrie", this 1912 novel deals poignantly and honestly with the costs of a woman's ambitions. Austin (1868-1934) portrays her heroine's decision to leave a dull husband in a Midwestern town to pursue an acting career and her rise to fame, against the background of the cramping social order of the time.
Mary Austin (1868 - 1934) was an American writer. One of the early nature writers of the American Southwest, her classic The Land of Little Rain (1903) describes the fauna, flora and people of the region between the High Sierra and the Mojave Desert of southern California.
